    :) not definitely 150+ , but always around 120-140 KMPH ... the reason i get less mileage is i climb 1800+ RPM asap... i dont like my car to be sluggish...

    @wolverine_arnab, just to answer your question, i drove my car for good mileage for the FIRST TIME in last 10 months...covered 40 kms and MID showed 20.5 KMPL ... on highway with couple of signals and bit of B2B traffic... hope you will be happy with number... but believe me , i didn't enjoy my drive even a bit :(... but to my surprise, more than 85 % of the cars were running on the same speed... i think i dont belong to majority :p

    I have crossed 20K KMS on my lovely Punto yesterday. Its been a very satisfying journey so far with few minor niggles...
    Following are the few minor pending items which needs to be taken care after the Ooty trip.
    1. Windshield washer not working.
    2. Rattles (Dashboard and Left doors).
    3. Boot lamp not working.
    4. Driver seat bolt became loose, thanks to Motomall for spoiling this by screwing on wrong thread :oops: .
    5. Rear right window noise while going up and down.
    6. Suspension "Thad" noise on bad roads which could be hear without music.
    7. Noticeable dent on the left front door.

    I have been following up with Mr.Tensign /Tafe for almost 2 months for getting the spare parts for #1 and #3. For some reason, they have not been co-operative by not returning the calls and telling me the same reason of "waiting for the spare", "company sent the repaired one"... I guess i will approach some other branch to get this job done.

    Most likely , i would have to go out of india for a little longer period by Nov... So would be completing 1 yr and giving my car to my dad :(...

    That is how it works sometimes,i have experienced this many time while passing over bumps or undulated roads, feel like the car in air and suddenly banged down :D

    Got the spares and both #1 and #3 are crossed out now. Thanks to Mr.Tensing for accommodating on Sunday.
